You're saying "experiments that probably don't have anything to do with their stated objective of relating the ingestion of HFCS to obesity and blaming it on the fructose." "Probably" means you can't say conclusively**********************But that's exactly how the Scientific Method works, sheila. It's to do with the confluence of evidence, general plausibility, alternative explanations, challenges to dogma etc. etc....I well understand the scientific method.But that's not what I'm talking about, my dear. I'm talking about OleDoc having arrived at conclusions about the authors' experiments based on having read a summary--the abstract--that does not contain the information he needs for drawing those conclusions.And as for "alternative explanations and challenges to dogma" -- makes me smile to see you including that in your (irrelevant) invocation of the scientific method, seeing as how you personally have such a tough time with such alternatives and challenges, no matter how well grounded they are. sheila
